With patriotism polling at an all-time high and a presidential election just months away, the Declaration of Independence has been getting lots of play these days -- that’s why the Tony Award winning Best Musical “1776”, is expected to rally Atlanta theater-goers this season especially with its unique ensemble of local actors, many holding executive/professional “day jobs” – performers who all love theater, love acting and the spirit of “1776”.
Leading the cast of 22 is Robert Wayne, Decatur attorney and actor playing Benjamin Franklin; Don Smith, Midtown corporate and private events planner playing Thomas Jefferson; and Sandy Springs’ David Parlier, a retired Atlanta public school science “Teacher of the Year” playing John Adams. A special cameo appearance by Stuart Culpepper, retired Atlanta actor extraordinaire joins the cast along with Lilburn accountant Andy Hoeckele; Delta Air Lines’ executive David Azzarello of Buckhead; Joe Lowery, AT&T telecom manager of Clarkston; and Buckhead Dermatologist Hal Brody, whose HB Productions in association with Dorsey Studios Theatre brings the story of America’s most powerful document “hatched” in the Philadelphia “heat wave” of “1776”.
“The passions, prejudices, brilliant and touching moments leading to the creation and signing of the Declaration of Independence come to life on stage just in time for this heated political season,” says Producer Hal Brody, playing delegate Edward Rutledge. “With eruptions of patriotism surfacing above the fray of political parties and clashes of anti-slavery stirring members of Congress, ‘1776’ will inspire and educate adults and students.”
The elaborately costumed musical account tells the story of the representatives of the 13 original colonies fulfilling their mission -- agreeing upon a document protecting the rights of Americans from the encroaching tyranny of England’s King George III. The 22-character musical includes just two women, Abigail Adams and Martha Jefferson.
Performed tunefully and with humor and love intertwined with alarming issues of the day, indeed, there is never a dull moment in the Congress of “1776”.
